The green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England, is home to the cider apple orchards which surround the gardens of Pear Tree Cottage. They enjoy a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury and Abberley clock tower. The Teme Valley lies just over the hill and, not far away, is the Herefordshire border. Although our climate is temperate, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener! This began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but, above all, demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers

Apple Juice Competition RESULTS!

We asked how many bottles of apple juice would result from these many apples:

On Wednesday we went to Haywood Park Farm Shugborough to collect our apple juice. These are the results after a nightmare journey on the M5/M6 and it was even worse coming home!

The result was the grand total of 77 bottles!!  See below for competition results.  It's amazing how many joint placings there are!!  Guesses ranged from a pessimistic 12 to a very optimistic 125!!! Congratulations to the winners - we look forward to all you winners calling round to collect your bottle of apple juice!!
